    Hi jadiva. Glad to have someone else in the same boat. Finished one assignment and working on second. Examples they give seem to be OK, but I can't imagine having a COLDSPA on every assignment every week. Guess we will find out the grading after this week.
    Yes, you have to produce at least one COLDSPA every week, unless things have changed since I took it (which was in April or so).

    What I did is use the lab manual to determine what is to be covered in the assignment, then I opened the textbook to determine what to do and how. You'll find examples in the book towards the end of each topic/chapter...the assessment in the book doesn't always sync up with how it's conducted in the lab manual though.

    On the brighter side, a lot of the history assessment skills will begin to become second nature to you since they stay fairly constant. And yes, you will seem like you're covering the same things over and over with each assignment...because sometimes you are. But at the end of the class, you have to consolidate all that info into one H&P.

    There were 2 examples in the resource sections in our blackboard (click on course materials) then go to documents. It is sample subjective and objective assignment. Helps somewhat.

    Thank you so much for the info. I've enjoyed all my courses thus far, but this one I feel like I'm teaching myself with no direction of what is expected. Aiming for an A. but I'll see how it goes.

    Meriwhen,
    It does not seem to hard, just following the rubrics to make sure I include what is needed. I think getting it started is the most difficult part, then it seems to flow from there! They seem to have some stuff out of order is all.

    Simple. 20 questions, 30 min. I think it covered Ch. 1-5 & 7, and the one on nutrition only. It didn't seem to involve all the readings, but there could be different tests also.

    I'm hoping to do my CCRN before december. I will be excused from 1 nursing elective if I pass. I have all the other nursing classes to complete.
